Ideally located on Kent Island, we are offering For Sale 226.37+/- acres of waterfront property located along Thompson Creek and Cox Creek, two beautiful tributaries that feed into the Chesapeake Bay.

With significant residential development adjacent to the property currently under construction by several major builders, this parcel has all the earmarking for future residential development in Queen Anne’s County. The entire property is zoned CS with Hotel Resort overlay, allowing up to 125 hotel rooms, 22 of which already have final plan approval, as well as allowing uses ancillary to a resort hotel. On March 25, 2015, the County granted final approval for a major site plan. Public water and sewer are nearby, giving this property an additional edge for growth. The connection fees for the sewer and water access are already being paid by the owner, helping to reduce the cost to bring public sewer to the property. These water and sewer approvals will be a significant driver in future residential/mixed-use land development approvals in the near future when Queen Anne’s County reviews and modifies its master plan commencing 2017 and this land is included in the Stevensville Master Planned Development (SMPD) District.
According to Queen Anne’s County Ordinance No. 12-02, “Maximum density for a SMPD District development shall be 3.5 dwelling units per acre for that portion of the development used for residential purposes and 4.375 dwelling units per acre if TDRs are used unless apartment development is proposed which may allow up to 20 units per acre… “ This could equate to the potential development of over 600 Single Family Dwellings. The statutory Stevensville master planning cycle commences in 2017 and could last up to one year.
The property is available for inspection by appointment. In addition to the submission of all-cash, non-contingent offers, the owner will also consider a joint venture agreement with third party hospitality management services for the on-going business activities and real estate development of the property.
